Twitter has released an update to its popular Twitter For Android application which gives users better control over images, allowing Instagram-style cropping with user-tagging functionality.
Now you can crop your photos by selecting an aspect, such as square or wide. You can rotate an image before you share it to make sure it fits nicely in your Tweet. And when you upload a photo of people, you’ll see a reminder to @ mention your friends so they can see your photo too.
The update also includes a new recommended tweets feature, which displays suggestions from Twitter when there are no new tweets in your timeline.
With this update, if you pull down on your home timeline to refresh it and there are no new Tweets to load, you may see recommended Tweets, trending topics and suggestions for new accounts to follow. In the U.S. only, you’ll see TV, sports and news events updates as well.
The new release is available for Twitter For Android now and coming to the iPhone app soon.
